A Month in Cancun at the Sunset Lagoon

March 20, 2012
Nichupte Lagoon

We are spending a month in this glorious place.  Sunshine and 80 degrees every day.  It may go to high 80s in summer and mid 70s during a cold snap but for us every day is blue skies, turquoise water, fresh fish, and plenty to do.  Clouds are welcome sometimes because the sun is strong.

This is a true vacation for us.  Sunshine, exercise, and real relaxation.  No obligations.  Nothing to accomplish.  For the first two weeks, we decide on no car.  Since we have no rental car expense, we buy two used but completely rehabbed bikes.  Two nice concierge staff people from the resort take us in their car on their time to find used bikes.  We find 2 nice one-speeds since it is flat here and they are all we can easily find.  Delivered to the resort.  Mine is hot pink with white wall tires, a white mesh basket, black and white seat.  Retro style.  A gem.  Larry’s is plain, manly black with no basket.

How to Plan Your Perfect Mexico Vacation

Cancun or the Riviera Maya?

The first thing you should consider when planning your Mexico vacation is which travel attractions and activities interest you. If you want to be where the action is — near tours, shopping, restaurants, bars, and nightlife — the Cancun Hotel Zone is the place to be. A resort on the famous strip will place you near Cancun’s hottest nightclubs like Mandala, Sweet, The City, and Coco Bongo, and exclusive shopping malls like Plaza Kulkukan and La Isla.

If you prefer a more relaxing environment closer to the region’s natural wonders, such as incredible cenotes (cavernous sinkholes with natural springs), tropical jungles, and cultural treasures like the ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum, Coba, and Chichen Itza, then a Riviera Maya resort is a great choice.
